Additional Culture Details
Because Grinnell Mutual emphasizes servant leadership, leaders focus on making sure that employees not only have the physical and technological tools and support they need, they make employee engagement and well-being priorities. Frequent and transparent communications from our CEO and other leaders, easy access to reliable information, generous benefits, a variety of free health services — and a commitment to providing some fun along the way — keeps company morale high. We also encourage and set a corporate example for helping in the community because leaders believe in living our core values.
